The public is invited to attend a concert titled Celtic Spirit, Music and Reflection for the Season of Lent, featuring harpist Mildred Crocker, Sunday, March 27 at 4 p.m. at the United Christian Church, 30 Searsmont Road/Route 173 in Lincolnville Center.

Crocker is a liturgical harpist associated with St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Camden and a certified therapeutic harpist working with hospice and care homes in the area. She will play “Panis Angelicus” by Franck, “Silent Worship” by Handel and “Monastery at Killmacdaugh” by Monk. Crocker will be joined by flutist Mary Schulien in leading the gathering in singing traditional Celtic hymns such as “Cwm Rhondda,” “Slane,” “St. Columba” and “Bunessan.”

Pastor Susan Stonestreet will provide readings for reflection during the program, which will run approximately 45 minutes. Celtic Spirit is the second in a Sunday series that includes an organ recital April 3 featuring Jane Schroeder, principal organist at St Thomas Episcopal Church playing the Rodgers Masterpiece Trillium Customized 788 organ; a Service of Healing and Reconciliation April 10, led by Pastor Stonestreet with folk music provided by Stonestreet on harmonica and Ellen Connors on guitar; and a Taize Service April 17, which includes singing meditation, selected readings, and silent prayer.
